Frommer Luxury Travel
“British West Indies Style” by Michael Connors
(Rizzoli $55.00, 200 pages and 200 color images)
takes the reader into a little seen world – one of magnificent colonial homes, one of elegance, refined taste. Almost 50 private homes are showcased as are their special craftsmanship, their mahogany writing tables, their linens, gardens and tropical hardwood fluniture. The less known islands Bequia and Dominica also have a place in the sun in this winning tome. Much more than a “picture book,” this is also a mini-history of the islands.
